María González Castillo, a promising young sportswoman from Tijola
Maria is Andalusian Champion in triathlon, duathlon and cycling.

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is to be superior to your inner self.” Ernest Hemingway perfectly defines one of the qualities that define Maria Gonzalez Castillo’s trajectory in sport ‘to win with humility’ as people who know her and have seen her compete say.

Only this year the young thirteen-year-old tijoleña has managed to be Andalusian Cycling champion, Andalusian triathlon champion, Andalusian duathlon champion, Andalusian circuit champion triathlon and duathlon CAREBA, Andalusian runner-up in cross duathlon and cycling champion of Murcia. At her young age she has the values of elite athletes; discipline, tenacity, patience and especially humility.

From her club Triatlón Tíjola – Ociodeporte Baza and following the advice of her coach José Luis González Martínez she has managed to become champion in many other races and circuits thanks to her effort and also to the unconditional support (emotional and tactical) of her family and especially her father, who always accompanies her. This year she has been one of the four selected by the Andalusian Cycling Federation where she got the 13th place after saving a fall.

Among the most immediate challenges is to continue competing in these modalities and get proclaimed champion of cycling in Spain, a sport that she especially likes.

The City Council of Tíjola cited her to give her a special recognition for her sporting merits given the important track record she has accumulated. She combines her passion and sporting discipline with her studies where she is obtaining very good grades. She is an example for girls and adolescents in the world of sport, promoting the inherent values of self-improvement and healthy living.
